The birthstone of November
There is an ancient Indian belief that Topaz worn close to the heart will gift the wearer intelligence, beauty and a long life.
An 8 on the Mohs scale of hardness, it's almost as hard as a Sapphire and tougher than Tanzanite, making it a good choice for a frequently worn piece.
The world's largest Blue Topaz is the Marbella Topaz. An oval cut stone of 100x130x70mm and weighs 8225 carats that is on display in Spain.
